I've tried lots of minimal shoes over the past 5 or so years, and I'd say the Core is probably in my top 5, maybe top 3, best shoes of all time: * Zero drop. Lots of shoemakers that were on the minimal bandwagon have gone back to producing shoes with a raised heel. Zero drop, in my experience, is a key aspect of a good shoe. * Reasonable stack height. With lots of shoe makers going back to 20+mm stack heights, Skora keeps it reasonable. Without the insoles, this shoe is 8mm, just about right to offer a little bit of cushion and protection while still keeping you low enough to the ground for proper form. * Great flexibility. The upper and outsole of this shoe have some decent structure to them but still the shoe remains very flexible in all directions. * Nice materials. The leather upper is amazingly high quality, and keeps getting better with break in. The outsole rubber is just right: firm enough to offer some protection and durability, but soft enough to be flexible and offer good ground feel. * Nice width. The forefoot, though it looks narrow, is actually decently wide. The feel through the midfoot and into the heel is just right. * Great versatility. I like a shoe that I can use for road and trail, long and short, etc. This is one of the few shoes I've found that can do it all. I can wear these sockless, no insole, with a sock, sock and insole, etc. depending on how much cushion or protection I need for the specific run. I do find the fit better (i.e. looser) without the insole. * Lightweight. This shoe weighs a lot less than I'd expect it to given the leather and reasonably dense outsole. They've left out most of the silly padding that so many shoes are sporting now: thank you! A few minor negatives: * Breathability is decent but suffers a bit because, well, the upper is leather. Kind of hard to fault the shoe for that, and it isn't a deal killer. * Rounded heel. I don't necessarily dislike this, but it takes some getting used to. With good form, though, you don't notice it at all when running. * Style. I know some people like neon and wacky colors. I wish there was a simpler color scheme available when I got mine (gray but with the silver heel and the neon green sole). Not a huge deal, I don't buy shoes for fashion, but I like them so much that I'd probably wear them even more (as a casual shoe) if they came in... black.

I'd also recommend: Merrell Vapor Glove, Vivobarefoot

An outstanding shoe that screams quality as soon as you open the box. The upper of the shoe molds to your foot which creates a perfect fit that is ultra comfortable. In addition, the shoe is incredibly versatile as it feels at home on the road, the trail, or even the treadmill. Outside of running, the shoe can work very well with casual clothing (provided you have the right colorway, of course). It is a very durable and long lasting shoe (I have friends who have put hundreds upon hundreds of miles on these shoes) that is worth every penny you pay for it and then some. NOTE: The review is going to mark this as "poor support" - but that's not really the case. This shoe is a minimalistic shoe - and the entire point is for it to not be "built up" so much. It's NOT a negative.

I'd also recommend: Other potential shoe brands would be Merrell, Brooks Pure Line, and VivoBarefoot
